here are my flea market and antique shop finds!

First find, this mermaid ornament for $6.99.  I know a lot, but I love it!  Also, I wanted to join some of the famous that have purchased from this antique shop.  I now join the buying likes of Barbara Streisand and Sally Struthers.  :)  I'm sure they bought more expensive items than I did.  Oh, and I was in Kennebunk, Wells, Ogunquit, and Cape Neddick, Maine.  ;)  I enjoyed 3 days with my Mom and Dad by the sea...Ahhhh!
  Next, a cast iron starfish that I placed with some of our beach stone collection from Maine and a chippy garden ornament. This is on my front porch.
 My next find, a cheese board with glass dome included.  So, I took some grass and added the 3 plastic robin eggs.  All made for $8.00 total! 

Another chippy garden ornament for $3.00! I love these! And below an old sap bucket with some Farmer's Market sunflowers that I bought today.  They are so sunny. ;)

A coffee sack for $3.00, which I wrapped with a cloth ribbon and a wooden antique bowl for $7.00

Lastly, this feather ticking pillow, new (not used ;)).  All said and done I spent $47.00 and some change.  Not bad for vacation, huh?  Have a wonderful weekend friends of the hive! ;)Alyssa
